US – IGT signs extension with Maryland LotteryBy Phil - 20 July 2015
International Game Technology has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, GTECH Corporation, has entered into a five-year extension agreement with the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission.
The deal will see it continue providing the company’s INTELLIGEN central monitoring and control system for the existing video lottery terminal (VLT) program at the state’s five licensed VLT venues: Hollywood Casino Perryville, The Casino at Ocean Downs, Maryland Live! Casino, Rocky Gap Resort and Casino, and Horseshoe Casino Baltimore. Additionally under the extension agreement, the Company will provide technology and services to connect the VLTs at the state’s sixth licensed VLT venue, MGM National Harbor, which is expected to open in the third or fourth quarter of 2016, to INTELLIGEN.
“We have built a strong partnership with the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission since this contract began in 2010, and we couldn’t be more pleased to extend the relationship,” said Michael Chambrello, CEO, North America Lottery, for IGT. “We have also gained a deep understanding of the VLT landscape in Maryland over the past five years, and welcome this new opportunity to assist the Commission in expanding its VLT program and supporting its next phase of growth.”
